3. James Lofton (1978-86)

Lofton was drafted seventh overall by the Packers in the 1978 NFL Draft. He was named the National Conference rookie of the year and a Pro Bowl player in his first season.

Throughout his nine seasons with the Packers, Lofton was named to the Pro Bowl seven times and All-Pro four times. The soft-handed speedster averaged 20 yards per catch or more in five seasons, leading the league in ’83 and ’84 with an average of 22.4 and 22 yards.

Unfortunately, Lofton was only on two winning teams in Green Bay. In his last season with the Packers he was charged with sexual assault after an incident in a local bar. The team suspended Lofton with one game left in the ’86 season. And although Lofton was later acquitted of the charge, the team traded him to the Raiders for a third- and fourth-round pick.
